Kell Brook opened up this week about life since retiring from boxing, admitting he feels lost without the sport and finds it tough keeping himself occupied.
Brook announced he would be hanging up the gloves after a sensational knockout win over long term rival Amir Khan at the A0 Arena in Manchester in February this year.
Speaking to Boxing King Media, Brook didn’t concretely rule out that one who he could return to the ring
“I am a bit lost at the minute. But obviously I put the time in with my girls and go for nice walks and go out on the bikes – you’ve just got to keep busy.”
“I’ve just got to get myself into a routine. Mental health is a big thing these days and you’ve got to make sure you look after that mind. You always need to have something to do.”
“27 years – it’s a little bit like I’ve died. Boxing’s been my life, it’s all I really know to a degree. It’s hard when you hang them up to transition into something different. I am retired… for now.”
Despite since being linked to fights with Conor Benn, Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Smith, Brook has remained out of the sport and managed to resist the temptation of resuming what was a glittering career.
Brook’s standout win prior to defeating Khan was the night he captured the IBF welterweight world title, travelling to America to topple the previously undefeated Shawn Porter back in 2014.
Back to back fights with Gennadiy Golovkin and Errol Spence Jr, despite being mammoth paydays for ‘The Special One’ were gruelling affairs and fights which many believe Brook never truly recovered from.
